Here’s a great gift for the audiophile on your list.
The Tivoli Platinum Series Model One Radio® in piano finish.
Not only is it a elegant piece of work and easy to operate, the sound is incredible — warm, enveloping. Using a monster cable, you can run your iPod through the speaker and deliver lush sound and a wholly different kind of listening experience. Besides, what would you rather have sitting on your desk hooked up to your laptop? Regular old speakers or one of these true hi-fi beauties? I’ve got three — a Model One in black and silver, a Model Three clock radio in cherry and silver, and a PAL in black rubber. And I wouldn’t mind a Platinum Series Model Two, hand-lacquered, walnut and beige one (or Sirius satellite service table top model one) for the “office” either…

I had a beautiful Roberts Radio when I lived in the UK, but it wouldn’t work here. It was so classic and had great sound.
Fairfax — it might. Converting down from 220 to 120 doesn’t pose the same risks that trying to convert up does. At least I had an electrician/contractor tell me that once in relation to a german art deco bar that we have. Of course I haven’t had the gumption to try it out.
It’s actually the bands that were the main issue. it’s got digital and long and short wave on it. i couldn’t figure out how that would work over here. i think the television and radio operate on different frequencies there.
